A greenway is a pathway established along a natural corridor, such as a river, stream, ridgeline, trail, or other route for conservation, recreation, biking, hiking, and other alternative transportation. Greenways provide a natural path to connect with our parks, nature preserves, and recreational facilities. Just as greenways connect people and places to nature, Outdoor Adventure Clubs of Greater Cincinnati helps local high school students find their path to connect with nature and the outdoors.
Each month we will give you an inside look at the fun and exciting adventures hosted by OACGC. Since we host adventures every month, we thought it best to give you look into the past, present, and future. Enjoy a recap of last months adventure, get a sneak peak at the adventures that are taking place this month, and get an exclusive preview of next months adventure. We’ll do our best to make you jealous of all the fun we have at work.
We like to stay busy, so there’s always plenty of events, campaigns, and other activities going on. Be warned! Most of the activities we share and promote involve sunshine, fresh air, and fun. Whether it’s one of our monthly retreats, a co-sponsored campaign with one of our partners, or an event hosted by one of our friends. We invite you to blaze a trail with us.
This section focuses on various subjects related to our program, our natural resources, and our beautiful outdoor spaces
We like to focus on local issues that affect our community and the students that we serve. Particularly those issues involving area parks and outdoor spaces, conservation and environment, health and wellness, economics and industry, and any other issues that hit home with our mission to connect kids with nature.
Who would have ever thought it would be difficult to get young people connected with nature and the outdoors. The reality is kids don’t spend enough time outdoors and we need to find ways to change this direction so that our kids can grow up happy and healthy. We try to make sense of all the research studies, facts and figures, and expert opinions that comprise this ever growing body of work.
The Greater Cincinnati area is some of the most beautiful country anywhere in the U.S. and we believe everyone should learn a little more about the role of conservation and environmental impact on our home.
The Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky outdoor recreation industry is a major employment sector worth billions of dollars and driven by lawmakers, large corporations, and other influencers. We believe this is an important subject for anyone living in the region.
